Farm Industry News announces its first-ever photo contest to celebrate the 2011 fall harvest. From now until Friday, Oct. 28, 2011, at 5 p.m., we will accept photos of your fall harvest experiences.

Photos can be submitted in one of two ways. Email the photo as an attachment to fin@penton.com with the subject line “2011 fall harvest photo contest,” or post the photo to the Farm Industry News Facebook wall (see instructions below). The entry limit is three photos per individual.
